Some recent sketches from my moleskin, etc (and some really terrible margins on those scans!). I have a big thing for sketching with red pencil.

work in progress: Rococo necklace
Next week I am going to be a bridesmaid for my dear sweet Sheil and Vic’s wedding. The wedding is sort of a punky Rococo-themed amalgamation, and Rococo is one of my favorite design periods!
I found this necklace at Anthropologie and really liked it, but thought it would be a cool idea to create some ultimately removable pieces to fit it more into the style period. I’m thinking I’ll leave it relatively asymmetric, and add in a few well-placed flowers on the other side. The applique needs a little trimming before it’s done and I’d like to incorporate the rose quartz teardrops in better with a few more beads. And yes, that flower is ponyskin.
Please click on the links to visit my Flickr page and see the images larger! Though, I still felt it quite necessary to also take a detail shot of the applique so far. I’d love to find a way to incorporate more roses and especially a bird into the piece! But I don’t want it to get TOO large. We’ll see…and of course I’ll post photos of the finished product!
